The Canadian Peace Alliance will take part in the Occupy Bay Street rumpus in Toronto tomorrow. "The contingent is part of the CPA's mandate to connect with and support new and growing movements for peace and justice. In that spirit, the CPA has recently launched a campaign called "Peace and prosperity, not war and austerity," making the links between rapidly increasing military spending and severe cuts to social services like healthcare and education."
I read CPA resolutions so you don't have to. Here are some resolutions from this weekend's "Canadian Peace Alliance" convention:
ELIMINATE THE CANADIAN MILITARY:
"Therefore Be It Resolved that the Canadian Peace Alliance urge the Government of Canada to make it a priority toeliminate the military and to divert the funding of military recruitment, facilities, equipment, etc, to human needs and social programs."
". . . .Be It Further Resolved that the Canadian Peace Alliance continues its campaign to curtail all activities and funding for Military Recruitment in all Canadian educational facilities and divert these funds towards non-violent peace studies as well as methods to reverse climate change."
